NASHVILLE, TN – August 1, 2018

Vanderbilt University has initiated an internal investigation after receiving a number of racist e-mail messages, local media reports.  The messages have been sent to students, professors and employees.

The university's NAACP chapter complained in a tweet about Monday evening's e-mail blast. The university tweeted early Tuesday that the "deeply disturbing" email, "containing racist language and promoted white supremacy," did not come from an official Vanderbilt account.

Officials say Vanderbilt's technology department is trying to find the source.

They recommended recipients delete the email without responding to it.
